Lesser Artifacts

Aurostones

Aurostones are simple rings or jeweled artifacts made from Auro that are designed to assist with a variety of magical utilities. They are usually fashioned as rings, though in rare cases they may be placed in pendants or other jewelry.

When an Aurostone is granted to someone, its magic is bound to the wearer to prevent it from being exploited by others. This process also makes it nearly impossible to create a forgery. Reversing the bind is only possible by clearing the Aurostone of its energy signatures; this process is done when Aurostone are passed to other mages, though most Aurostone are kept for life before being recycled.

Energy Signatures

The primary function of an Aurostone is to simplify the process of magical identification and spell activation. Each Aurostone possesses several hundred energy chambers that can store energetic signatures and sequences of magical instructions. The number of chambers usually depends on the size of the Auro gem that was used and the proficiency of the alchemist that created the Aurostone.

Energy signatures can be activated to prove one's clearances, to trigger spells, to sign contracts, exchange proof of deeds, to exchange credit, or to activate a simple sequence of magic. Activating an energy signature can be done with a properly held intention, a command phrase, a gesture, or a combination of these elements.

It is possible to test if someone's Aurostone has a particular energy signature if both parties possess the same signature. One can also grant energy signatures through a simple imprinting command. Most magical orders make common use of Aurostones amongst their ranking members as their way of granting rank and titles, as well as to control access through magically-locked areas.

Distribution of Aurostones

Aurostones are the most common type of magical artifact used by mages. They are often passed down through generations, and are also one of the easiest artifacts to produce. It is common for alchemists to be expected to create an Aurostone as an important prerequisite for graduation. Since Auro already possesses the magical advantages that are primarily sought by an Aurostone, a talented alchemist could finish an Aurostone by themselves over the course of a few months. It also ensures that the alchemist's training includes at least one project with magical materials; not just alchemical materials.

Every mage that graduates from one of the magical academies will possess an Aurostone by the time of their graduation; usually earlier, depending on their heritage and the nature of their studies. Since Aurostones are frequently used for triggering spells, shamans and casting wizards tend to require them earlier in their studies. Mages that don't attend the magical academies would usually only possess Aurostones if they were of sufficiently powerful lineage or had the proper connections.

Powerful or wealthy mages usually pay to have larger and more fashionable Aurostones that are produced by master alchemists. Their functions aren't usually much more impressive, but it does allow them to have a larger number of chambers available to them.

Customization

Some energy signatures are always imprinted on standard Aurostones, or can be easily acquired. These typically include energy signatures provide the following functions: triggering the activation of publicly usable artifacts, voting yes, voting no, abstaining from a vote, and a call beacon. Many public artifacts have been standardized to make use of these imprints.

Each mage decides what energy signatures to imprint or remove, and could choose to have non-standard imprints if they desired. There are usually twenty to sixty chambers dedicated to energy signatures that indicate family lineages, guilds or organizations that the mage belongs to, schools or academies that the mage has attended, ranks and titles the mage has acquired, positions the mage holds, powers the mage has, and any other beneficial merits the mage possesses. Remaining chambers may store small messages for proof of transfer, proof of agreements made, clearance to pass certain magical locks or traps, or simple instructions to activate minor spells or rituals that are prepared and waiting for an activation.

Casting Runes

Casting runes are small, flat, magical stones about the size of a large coin with straight edges. They come in different shapes and have symbols or incantus chisled into the rock. Wizards can attune to the runes using a Minor Chamber to gain its benefits.

If an attuned casting rune is within an nearby proximity (generally about thirty to forty meters), the wizard can cast magic through it; even if it is behind several walls. From up to roughly one hundred meters, the wizard can sense the direction and location of their attuned casting runes when concentrating.

Warding magic can be used to easily dispel the effects of casting runes, preventing their owners from even sensing the rune. Casting runes are also easy can be deactivated by the user that cast a spell with them, or through simple dispelling magic.

Most mages are provided at least one casting rune during their schooling. Many such runes have been used for over a thousand years, still being passed down to later generations of mages. Some mages don't carry any due to their nature of spellcasting, while others may carry several.

Devices, Magical

NameDescription
EchoshellA conch shell that amplifies someone's voice, broadcasting it across a larger area. Often used at magical ceremonies, or for purposes during war. Some are enchanted to be useful underwater.

Divining Tools

Divining tools come in many forms, and there are many specialist diviners that focus in a particular art. Most divining tools used in practice are not magical, and instead rely upon the user's intuition and archetypes of the global consciousness to help draw forth answers from the unknown. Enchanted divining tools are intended to serve the same purpose as their non-magical counterparts, but seek to amplify the user's natural intuition.

NameDescription
Druid's CardsA deck of cards with major and minor archetypes drawn upon them. Special patterns and card layouts help to answer questions.

Ghostlights

Ghostlights are magical lights that appear lit with ghostly fire that neither burns nor gives heat. They are usually produced in the form of Ghost Lanterns, with a candle placed inside for symbolic purposes. The presence of a ghostlight will attract Chambis from other dimensions and slowly tether it into the surrounding area. This causes the room fill with an ambient light over the course of a few hours or days, depending on the size of the room. It takes just as long for the effect to disappear if the ghostlight is removed from an area.

Once a ghostlight has reached its saturation point for a room, that room may be as bright as daylight. Not all ghostlights are identical, though. Some are brighter than others, expand further, produce their light more quickly, or may produce different colors. The simpler forms of ghostlights are one of the easier things to produce with alchemy. Due to their high demand, most alchemy students will work on ghostlights as beginning projects.

If a ghostlight is bound to a specific location and attuned to the energies of the area, its power is greatly enhanced. Unlike a typical ghostlight that can fill a large room, a bound ghostlight could fill an entire palace. Though more difficult to create, many ghostlights are created at the location for which they were intended for this reason.

Necrolights

Necrolights are similar to ghostlights, except that their saturation of a room will allow the presence of spirits to be visible to the observer. In some cases this degree of awareness will allow amplify forms of telepathic communication with the spirits, as well as make it much easier to perform necromancy.

Though ghostlights are far more common and have many more practical uses, Necrolights had been discovered first. Most Necrolights are now either handed down between the few Necromancers that exist, or are produced by the Bonesmen. They are far more difficult than ghostlights to produce.

Runelights

Seers saw fit to produce ghostlights that could allow alchemists to observe some degree of magic as they did. Rather than providing additional light, runelights were designed to augment the ability to perceive magic in the area of saturation. Magical energies, chambis, and the processes of tethering become slightly visible in a myriad of beautiful colors that pass through the world. This effect may even be visible in darkness to some degree, as the energies themselves produce minimal amounts of light when augmented.

The primary use of a runelight is for alchemy, though it serves other mages as well. It is possible to use runelights to discover the finer nuances of a spell, and they are particularly useful for shamanic rituals. However, most runelights must be attuned and bound to a specific location when created. Any portable runelight, even one that would require saturation, would be elevated to the status of a relic.

Even though it is not the purpose of a runelight to behave as a Necrolight, it too will reveal the energetic presence of spirits. Spirits revealed through runelights will appear far different than in necrolights; their forms will take much more magical and colorful appearances.

Hexplates

Hexplates are small magical boxes that are programmed for a specific task. The task always involves waiting for a specific action and triggering a simple magical energy in response to it. Any beginner alchemist can create them, and they are usually one of the first projects learned during alchemical studies.

Most Hexplates are small metal boxes with a symbol engraved on it to indicate its importance. The actual magic required to create a Hexplate is very limited, usually only requiring a lesser gem to power it depending on how many instructions it must hold.

Hexplates may serve a variety of functions; anything from activating magical traps and alarms, opening magilocks, signaling an arrival, automating a simple task, and so forth.

NameDescription
Alarm HexplateActivates a magical alarm; often one that silently alerts any nearby mages that have been attuned to the hexbox.
Lock HexplateUnlocks a nearby magilock that it's been assigned to.
Trap HexplateActivates a magical trap that it's been assigned to trigger.

Magilocks

Magilocks are locks that must be unlocked by a specific energy activation, usually one that was properly programmed through a Hexplate. Magilocks also do not have any method by which to be picked with a physical instrument, making them an ideal option for security. It is next to impossible to bypass a magilock without the valid energy signatures. They are frequently used by magical orders to restrict clearance to specific ranks or people with given titles.

Talismans

Talismans are simple magical trinkets that are often used for protection, passive energy collection, or to influence subtle changes in one's environment. The general description of a talisman is an accessory or charm, typically a small one, that performs a very limited form of magic.

NameSummary
Clarity TalismanHelps the user feel energized, keeps their mind clear, and makes it easier to sleep and stay focused at work.
Mindlock TalismanImproves one's mindlock; even a terrestrial would possess the advantages of mindlock with this talisman in their possession.
Mood TalismanInspires a desired mood or emotion, such as one that keeps the wearer more content and peaceful.
Pain TalismanInflicts physical pain to the wearer, strengthening with time. Used by certain warriors to train their pain tolerance.
Warding TalismanHelps passively resist and absorb any incoming magic.

Totems

Totems are magical artifacts that similar in nature to Hexplates, though much more advanced. Unlike Hexplates, which activate very simple reactions, Totems cast simple forms of magic without needing intervention. Many magical devices are capable of casting magic on their own, though Totems are the most common form and are specifically designed to be programmed to automate magical tasks.

It is common for Totems to be combined with symbol magic that would draw in the appropriate energies for the Totem to work with. It is possible for a Totem to be incapable of functioning if the surrounding energies cannot be sufficiently tapped.

Wands & Channeling Devices

Wands are the primary channeling devices that hones and focuses the energies of a spell-caster, enabling them to wield magic with more precision and at faster speeds. Though wands are not required to cast magic, it radically improves the thaumaturgy casting of those who are proficient with them. As a result, the majority of mages will possess a channeling device.

Wands are by far the most common type of channeling device, representing more than twenty to one any other type. Even those that possess other types, such as staves, will usually carry wands as another primary casting method. Staves are better with wide-area casting and rituals, though are harder to wield and slower acting than wands. Wands are better at targeting and precision focus.

Most channeling devices are crafted from the magical wood of Spellwood trees. Wooden wands are good for general magical purposes. Specialty wands, such as those augmented with specific filters, may benefit when casting certain spheres of magic; though are typically hampered with others as a result. Most specialty wands are crafted with magical metals, and cost far more than typical ones. Magical gems are sometimes used to augment channeling devices (particularly with Scepters), allowing them to passively collect and store energies.

Wizard's Bags

The majority of wizard's bags are not magical, though they are prolific enough among mages to represent a critical part of their magical attire. They hold the wizard's quintessential magical tools and belongings; wands, grimoires, components, casting runes, symbols, potions, spell and ritual scrolls, etc. Many contain a quill and ink for writing in magical linguis or common alchemical ingredients.

Wizard's bags are further categorized into wizard's satchels and wizard's packs. Satchels are the most common form, worn as handbags. Larger varieties are often meant for carrying books, journals, and other texts. Wizard's packs are worn as backpacks, usually used by travelers or for specialized purposes. Alchemists may use them to carry a large number of potions or alchemy ingredients. A common alternative to the wizard's bag is the wizard's belt, which is designed to be a lighter load and be minimalist, such as to carry wands and minor components.

Many wizard's bags will have multiple wand slots for owners that use specialized wants that are applicable in certain instances.

Minor Artifacts

Minor Artifacts typically cost in the realm of 100 gold; roughly what a highly skilled tradesman would earn in 55 years before expenses. It is illegal for terrestrials to possess minor artifacts due to their extraordinary value, as it would be assumed they had stolen it.
